Resources for Getting Your "Stuff" in Order (pdf)

The University of New Mexico has developed a wonderful Values History form to assist you in thinking about and recording your personal values regarding your health and care wishes.
Download their form UNM Values History.

I’ve adapted the UNM Values History Form in a different format for my clients to complete so we can have a conversation and record of their wishes when or if I need to be their spokesperson in the future. This might be useful in sharing your wishes with your family members or others who will be your agent on a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care.
